TAP

Tap is rhythm – rhythm is tap. Its origins are many and varied. Americans claim its origin dates from the African Jazz age. The Irish stake their claim to the Jigs and Step Dancing. The English relate back to northern Clog Dancers but whichever one chooses to believe, Tap is as popular today as it was in the heyday of the great Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly musicals.

EP DANCE follow the IDTA syllabus for Tap classes.

We are currently offering Tap classes from age 6+.

"EP DANCE helped me get back into dancing after quitting it for a few years and as it increased my confidence it helped me branch out into other area of performances arts. This encouraged me to pursue acting at uni when I am today"
